Designed by George Carwardine for Anglepoise, the Original 1227 Wall Light makes a striking statement within the modern home with its polished chrome-plated fittings and glossy steel shade that is available in a range of rich colourways.
Use as a spotlight to enhance objects or furniture in the room, or position alongside your favourite reading chair to make your evening all the more relaxing.
The English automotive engineer George Carwardine designed the "Anglepoise", a desk lamp, around 1930 and had its innovative construction patented in 1932. The shade is fastened to a long arm, which is jointed in two places. This construction not only makes the lampshade adjustable but also enables users to position the entire lamp in different ways, depending on what source of light is needed. The equilibrium of forces is achieved in all positions to which the lamp can be adjusted by springs, which function on the principle of the muscles in the human arm.
